In their game money really does grow on trees. :-)
Hopefully they have learnt the lesson (a very hard way) and won't expose their skin so badly again.
The main reason for the visit however was for the 4 parents and Daniel and Rachel to sit and have a good chat about their relationship. It's the first child of theirs in a serious relationship, so we are all in a new area of parenting. We had a lovely time of sharing and getting to know each other more. It's nice knowing we are all on the same page and have the same ideas for the years ahead.
Saturday 6th: Ruth took this photo of Anakin with Anastasia. Anakin was lying on her mat, so she put Anastasia there for the photo.
They did allow Hannah and Hezekiah to come and visit.
I have such fond memories of having rides on my Dad's bike - so I was sure they would enjoy the experience. Just a short ride down the road was enough for the fun memory to be made.
Ruth wanted to try and hold Anastasia on her potty. She is not as dry during the day as she was in her first month. She is often dry through the night though. Even holding for 4 to 6 hours and then using the potty when she wakes for a feed. I remember Ruth being dry at night when she was a baby. I also remember that she would eventually just wake for a wee (not needing to eat) and so I eventually "trained" her to ignore the need and just use her nappy as I didn't want the hassle of waking to take her to the toilet. I'm hoping I will have enough energy to keep Anastasia dry at night.
Ruth also enjoys getting Anastasia to "walk". It really is sweet seeing the reflex that babies have to lift their feed and place them in front of each other.
Last night Asher had a bad episode at 9pm. They are happening more often lately which is a concern. Today she had a 1 min Tonic Clonic at 4:15pm. She went very blue, even her hands. So we were very thankful it was again short.
Wednesday 10th: Asher was showing a bit more interest in Anastasia today when she was under her toys. I encouraged her to lie under there with Anastasia, and so she started gently touching her. So special.
